To complement the self-help ethos of The Big Issue magazine, The Big Issue Foundation was established in 1995 as an independently registered charity.
We support Big Issue vendors to achieve financial stability through their magazine sales whilst helping them to overcome longstanding social disadvantages previously holding them back. All our beneficiaries are Big Issue vendors that buy magazines for £1.25 with their own money from official distribution points and sell them for £2.50 on a designated pitch.
Our vision is to create opportunities that will end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors and our mission is to connect Big Issue vendors to the vital support and specialist services that enable them to rebuild their lives and determine their own pathways to a better future.
Our work is reliant on the support of our donors, please join our lottery to help raise vital funds for our work.
How it works
The Lottery results are calculated using the temperatures from selected destinations around Europe on a particular day each week.
Players are assigned 6 numbers when registering, that are then checked against the last 6 digits of temperatures in Fahrenheit that are published in the Daily Mail on the day of the draw.
